Church call to develop 'sense of awe'

26th December 1997 at 00:00
Developing a sense of "wonder, awe and mystery" is essential for promoting spirituality in school, according to a new book from the Church of England. Social Development aims to make a "significant contribution" to the teaching of morality and religion.

It suggests schools draw up individual plans for teaching personal education. Each plan should allow space for creative questioning and accept personal belief systems, but at the same time recognise "the place a Christian faith has in the lives of people".

Social Development is published by the National Society for the Promotion of Religious Education, and is available from Church House Bookshop, 31 Great Smith Street, London, SW1P 3BN. Tel: 0171340 0276.
